Sonora Review is run entirely by graduate students in the MFA program and undergraduates at the University of Arizona. Sonora Review accepts submissions in flash prose, fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. We only accept unpublished work. Typical response time is three months.

PROSE (Fiction / Non-Fiction) should be typed, double-spaced, and include page numbers. We are unable to read prose submissions that exceed 5,000 words. Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.

POETRY (Up to 5 poems per submission) should be typed and submitted in one document, with the titles separated by commas in the “Submission Title” field. You may abbreviate the titles if they do not fit. Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.

Flash Prose should be typed, double-spaced, and include page numbers. We are unable to read submissions that exceed 1000 words. (Due to their length and higher frequency of publication, these pieces will most often be published online, but may also be considered for publication in our print issues.)  Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.
